It ensures the customer remembers the product or the shop every time the plastic bag is viewed. This is kind of like a harmless brainwash to customers regarding various products or shops containing these items.

Such manufacturers can concentrate on specific sizes and shapes instead of experimenting with the whole lot. Also, industries on a smaller scale cater to daily use plastic bags such as garbage bags, newspaper bags, and litterbags. Special bags for airplanes such as the airsick bags are usually bought by the airplane industries in wholesale.
